camouflage sensory bin

Great for not only sensory play but also for teaching kids about how some animals and reptiles keep themselves safe and also hunt. 

In this bin there is only-
rocks-(costed me any $4 at a local yard sale all new in bags 3 different kinds, so there were many different feels)
toy animals- (cost me $2 at a local yard sale, again most had different feels to them for sense of touch.)
and toy digger and tweezers (we had for awhile)

I hidden some snakes and lizards in and around the rocks and then added the fake tree and bigger snake.

Before I let my daughter dig in I explained to her what it means when someone or something is camouflage and also told her besides the big snake there is many other animals in this box and seen if without touching it if she could find any.
When she did not I let her dig in and find them while I explained why some animals use camouflage and to always watch out for animals that do.

When she decided she was done playing I made sure to explain also that these are toy animals and she is never to grab or go near a real wild animal. That she is to respect nature!

Home made hermit crab food (that kids can help with)

Recently we adopted 4 hermit crabs and after reading up a little more on them we learned they like us, need a healthy diet and that store bought hermit crab food can be down right deadly..This gave me a good idea of showing my daughter what a healthy diet for hermit crabs is and at the same time talk about what is healthy for us to eat. I talked to her about how store brand food is not the best things for the crabs to eat just like "fast food" is not for us....I went on to tell her some healthy things that we eat that the crabs can eat too..She was a little surprised all the things that we can share with our new crab buddies. So with a watchful eye we started cutting some things up to dehydrated and make our own hermit crab food.(great for practicing cutting skills!)
This is what the turn out came to look like. A whole bin of food that should last awhile. We added  ~oats ~dehydrated apples ~dehydrated peaches ~dehydrated tomato ~dehydrated carrots  ~organic pasta ~dehydrated…
